Normand Leveille, Retired Boston Bruin, at the Rolling Rally Parade.

I had the pleasure of meeting Normand Leveille and his wife Denise after they drove down from their home in Montreal to celebrate the Bruins’ Stanley Cup win. See my photos below. For those that don’t remember Normand, in 1982 at the age of 19 years, he suffered a very serious brain aneurism after a game vs Vancouver. He was in a coma for nearly a month and spent a total of almost 2 months in the hospital. His wife Denise said they both cried while watching the Bruins game 7 victory. Normand, according to Denise, superstitiously stood during the last period of the game, not wanting to sit (see bottom photo e-mailed to me by Denise)  Read more in the Boston Herald.
